This was such an amazing tour. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Scotland's monuments and history. Even though the journey between stops was lengthy in parts, he had a lot of interesting tidbits about the surrounding landscape and towns and entertained us with lots of Scottish music. Rosslyn Chapel is a must to see, with its fascinating carvings and rich history, and its use in the Da Vinci Code (though they don't focus much on this). Hadrian's wall was also fantastic piece of history and there is plenty of time to explore. You stop in a couple of quaint towns as well, and if time, at couple of extra interesting viewpoints like the Scottish/English border. For those concerned about taking this tour while COVID is a risk, it felt very safe to us; the tour guide sanitised the bus regularly and we were well spread out from other guests. Rosslyn Chapel was actually less crowded due to restrictions as well which was great.
Had a wonderful time on this tour! While the destinations were wonderful and exactly what I was expecting, it was the driver and tour guide, Iain, who was the best part of this day and reason for the 5 stars. He was extremely knowledgeable of English and Scottish history which was an excellent addition to the tour. He was warm, funny, safe driver, and also played enjoyable music that fit with the overall theme of the tour. Overall, would recommend!
The tour was great. Small group of 6. Comfortable car. Positive and storytelling guide Iran (hope I spelled name correct) Everything in time. Good for adults, not sure about the kids under 10. On the way back home we were enjoying very authentic local music. I liked it very much.
I had an amazing time at the Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian Wall. Eddie, our driver from the Heart of Scotland Tours, gave us cute little stories during the tour. Only 5 of us booked the tour, and good thing they didn’t cancel it.
This tours is very well, our guide was Graham, who is a very friendly and helpful man. Thank you Graham this nice day! Peter and Irene from Hungary
